We are looking for a special person to work within our family and to ideally build a bond with Dexter for a long term opportunity with increased hours potential.
Dexter needs someone who is calm, patient and who can keep an eye out for potential dangers while promoting his independence still. Dexter likes control and is very self-led. He is independent in dressing, toileting and feeding/drinking.

He loves to play with his stuffed Teddy collection, build model aeroplanes from stickle bricks and watching his favourite films. Dexter uses his ipad building games to regulate and enjoys making avatars.
